Whitby Courthouse TheatreFeb 7, 2019 - Feb 23, 2019 ~ Whitby Courthouse Theatre

Two on the Aisle, Three in a Van welcomes you to another season at the Neighbourhood Actors Summerfun Repertory Theatre, a friendly playhouse where, due to a lack of wing space, the company spends their downtime in the parking lot around an aging hippie/now turned techie’s van.
A stressed-out artistic director, a wanna-be diva who’s realizing her ingénue expiration date has just about passed, a board member’s nephew vying to direct the musicals with a Tarrentino spin and the “I’m no chorus boy” chorus boy who thinks every show should have a kick line – are just some of the egos and obstacles that fall into the lap of Mike, a nice-guy director who ends up with far more than he bargained for. In the end, somehow, some way, the show must go on... just not always as planned.
